There are many lakes within a short flying distance of Scoop Lake that are full of native lake trout. The lakes are so clear and the trout so plentiful, that it’s common to drift by a shoreline and watch the lake trout as they cruise looking for a free meal. Most of the lake trout average 3-7 lbs. It’s common for anglers to land 30 to 50 lakers each in a day’s fishing. Anglers regularly land lake trout between 10-20 lbs. but, because these lakes contain so many fish, the smaller ones are hard to keep off the hook! Anglers can troll the shorelines, cast from shore or from a boat, or they can “sight-cast” flies to cruising lake trout, or fly-cast to the breaks where lake trout cruise all day long looking for food.
The main lodge is situated on Scoop lake which is full of Northern Pike and Whitefish. Here guests can take fully equipped boats and explore the entire lake in one day. The fishing is so good that it’s common to walk the shorelines or wade and catch lots of fish. In the spring and early summer, Northern Pike in Scoop Lake will be concentrated in the southern bay and the most northerly shoreline. The water is so clear at Scoop that it’s common to “sight-cast” to Pike early in the season when they venture onto the shallow sandbars in search of Whitefish.
Arctic Grayling are one of the plentiful fish found in the drainage basin at Scoop Lake Outfitters. Whether it’s in the rivers, streams, or lakes, Arctic Grayling are commonly caught where the streams flow into the lakes, as well as along the lake shorelines. In the streams and rivers, Arctic Grayling are virtually everywhere, often sharing the same waters with Lake Trout and Bull Trout. Arctic Grayling can be caught on light spinning gear, or by fly-fishing. The Arctic Grayling here average 12-16 inches, and are so plentiful that, once located, they can be caught all day long. Many fishermen land between 30-50 grayling a day.
Bull trout prefer clean flowing water something Scoop Lake Outfitters has in abundance. Bull trout can be up to 15lbs depending on which lake or stream you are fishing. Bull trout can be caught on spinning gear or on the fly.
